BSFA MEETING HELD ON 21ST JULY 2019
Meeting Report by Graham Daw, Chairman.
The day started out with sunshine and the field was in great shape despite worries earlier in the week about the hardness of the ground.
Set up was fairly smooth with some training being done on setting the course up by Chris, and walking the course being done by Julia.
All was ready by about 10.15 and trials started soon after with some very promising beginners.
The main morning runs started off with the puppies before continuing with the adults. All proceeded without problem and the lure machine ran perfectly having been given a bit of TLC, (grease and new Solenoids, to be exact) since the last meeting.
There was some more training on manning the entrance tent by James and lure driving by Chris.
The sky clouded over as the morning progressed and there was a short spit of rain during the lunch break. Which did cool things down a little but didn’t affect the running or get any dogs wet.
The afternoon runs went ahead without any hitches and there was time for a couple of fun runs at the end.
Fly’s score inputting skills were missed on the day (due to illness) but with her forward planning beforehand and Alison Crane kindly stepping in to help, meant everything ran smoothly on the admin side of things as well.
A few members gathered together for a group photo as a ruse to be able to present Julia with a rather fabulous birthday cake made by Kate Bent who also bought a selection of scrumptious cakes for sale on the day.
Thank you to Sue for organising the raffle and selling tickets as usual and a big thank you to all those who helped with the set up and put away, and/or helped with the running of the meet to make an enjoyable day for all who attended.
